President Daniel T. Oliver, Dr. Jack Borsting, and the Naval Postgraduate School Board of Advisors (BOA) celebrate the group's 40th anniversary with a ceremonial cake on April 17. The board, established in May 1967 by Secretary of the Navy Paul Nitze, held its first meeting September 14-15 that year. In forming the board, Nitze noted, "in the Navy of today, we need...superior technical, analytical and managerials skills." Nitze's goal was to impanel distinguished civilian educators, military officers, business and professional leaders who could advise NPS leadership and the Navy secretary on the effectiveness of the service's advanced education programs.
